The Content Policy Committee is a committee workgroup of the Organization for Transformative Works. The Content Policy Committee works closely with the OTW's Legal and Policy & Abuse teams. It helped create and helps manage the Terms of Service for to Archive Of Our Own.
The OTW website described its role:
Content Policy designs and implements the Terms of Service and other policies for the Archive of Our Own. Familiarity with the Archive is helpful. Ability to synthesize multiple and sometimes conflicting priorities is a positive trait, as is a good understanding of expectations about fannish behavior (and the variety of those expectations). Much of our communication is asynchronous, though we do have occasional meetings. Work is sporadic, so nothing may happen for long stretches, but when we do make changes we often have vigorous debates. Content Policy could be a good second committee for someone looking for greater involvement in the policy side of the organization without a substantially increased time commitment. Ability to stay in contact and to meet deadlines is a plus.
